Songs About Games, Games People Play

So here's a song topic that I don't recall us having played - Songs about Games. What songs can you think of about games, mentioned or implied, of any sort in the title or lyrics? 

 

So I'll start with this one as sort of a "blanket" title - - -

One of my favorite 70's bands growing up, Foreigner's "Head Games" was and still is a hit with my generation.

CHESS
And its news is captured
For the queen to use!
Move me on to any black square
Use me anytime you want
Just remember that the goal
Is for us all to capture all we want (Move me on to any black square)                     I’ve seen all good people/Your Move - Yes

       CHESS                                                   Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time
And its news is captured
For the queen to use!
Move me on to any black square
Use me anytime you want
Just remember that the goal
Is for us all to capture all we want (Move me on to any black square)                     I’ve seen all good people/Your Move - Yes
